You must be joking

braaaaaains. Must eat braaaaaains.

It has been a damnably long, hard day. Much of the hardness is due to my asking Molly for help with my various idiocies surrounding food. These conversations are unquestionably productive, but I have an unfortunate tendency to shamble around like a zombie afterward.

One of the lovely and shareable things that came my way was this Rainer Maria Rilke quote:

"If you will cling to Nature, to the simple in Nature, to the little things that hardly anyone sees, and that can so unexpectedly become big and beyond measuring; if you have this love of inconsiderable things and seek quite simply, as one who serves to win the confidence of what seems poor: then everything will become easier, more coherent and somehow more conciliatory for you, not in your intellect, perhaps, which lags marveling behind, but in your inmost consciousness, waking and cognizance."

Which reminds me to note that I finally gave in to the urge to garden (again) and picked up a couple of shrubs and a couple of pots of bunchgrass at the CNPS sale in Los Altos last Saturday. My goal for this weekend is to get them in the ground. Somehow.
